IDS is still the best value for the money for oem scanners. unlike GM and others that offer subscription packages which don't give you every thing you want unless you have deep pockets ( like cable t.v. packages ). Ford gives you scanner and programming for all OBD 2 connector vehicles with free upgrades to the latest version every couple of weeks for once a year fee. Programming modules with IDS is practically idiot proof and very fast. They seem to constantly develop advanced automated tests for new vehicles. Mode 6 data is actually laid out in a useful way. PID graphing quality is great. There is a learning curve when it comes to menu layouts.
